Meditation resulting in visual anomaly

For three months my meditation focused on a white dot. I sat for three monturs each day.

    In Ajahn Brahm’s book on meditation he describes a phenomenon he calls a nimitta, a shining and sparkling area in his vision.

    It does happen...

  • Hi,
    Welcome to new Buddhist :)

    Meditation resulting in visual anomaly

    You are concentrating, focussing, perhaps stressing?

    1. Why are you doing this?
    2. What is a montur?
    3. What is the anomaly?

    A montur is the famous unit of meditation, which hovers over your head while sitting and flaps away when full, only to be replaced by a new empty one. What do you mean you don’t know about monturs?! ;)
